Deciding to locate a bus rapid transit (BRT) station directly in front of City Hall, instead of one block further east, provides an opportunity to integrate BRT with major destinations, improve City Hall plaza security through increased activation and use, and connect to the planned bike sharing program at City Hall. A City Hall station is a less costly option and would be a public demonstration of San Jose’s commitment to prioritizing transit.
